Professional Carwashing & Detailing

The importance of hand care

June 1, 2011

Handwashing for the removal of soil is essential for healthy skin. And, healthy skin means a lot to those making a living with their hands. Handwashing with heavy-duty cleansers, or frequent handwashing with mild skin cleansers, however, results in drying of the skin, especially in the winter months. One of the most effective solutions may be a regimen of washing followed by the use of hand cream, which protects as well as repairs and restores the skin.

What most detail technicians are finding is that the use of a heavy-duty latex “surgical” glove provides the best protection against the many chemical irritants used in a detail shop. The gloves are thin enough to allow detailers to still “feel” the job, as they say. Auto mechanics have almost universally embraced the use of these gloves in the performance of their work. That should be good enough for detailers. As an owner, it is important to consider that employees use gloves in the performance of their detailing work. In the end, it will benefit them and your profitability.
